Something crazy, whenever you post on this thread, it somehow reads (on the main page): "What is going on?" - "something crazy". How appropriate... :?

Really, is it something I am doing wrong?

I've got to say that wenesday afeternoon I gave the venue, here in Grenoble a call, to ask about the show. I was told nothing was changed, and tickets are still on sell. The woman I talked to was indeed very astonished with what I reported to her concerning a possible postponement or cancellation and she asked me where I'd heard such a thing.

I'll try to find out if today things are different.

Could we hope that someone in the vast AEG organisation is beginning to feel a little bit guilty????? Or is that just very naive?

I wonder what the chances are for this to be sorted out today, as i'm guessing any updates over the weekend out of office hours are unlikely...

Maybe they are hoping whatever the problem causing the Caen postponement is, will be fixed by the time the tour reaches Grenoble, which is over a week ahead of the Caen date.

Does anyone who speaks good French fancy giving Zenith Caen a call to ask about the postponement there, and confirm if the date is postponed?

Edit:

An update from Patrice over at the French forum (courtesy again of Google Translate)

Robert has kindly responded.
-> The announcement will take place next Monday!
Announcement of what? I did not have permission to say but I changed the 1st post and the evidence already given by Jarkko and I have added something ....

My advice: do not book anything! Neither tickets or hotel, or train, or plane, nothing from nothing. Voila, it was another sign and I think with that, everyone will understand what will happen to the dates scheduled in March.

The Zenith of Caen was perhaps the info (or rather the loss of info!) Here or at Jarkko ... Gerard Druot is probably aware but also expects the announcement to send a mailing list ...

Patrice.


Oh, and the first post he mentions has now been changed with a line scored through every date.

Looks like none of these dates will be going ahead on schedule, then....

Why should they be reading an internet forum? They don't just deal with LC but with everyone and their granny as it seems, and if they would spend their days reading stuff on the net they certainly wouldn't get anything organised, don't you think? :)

Could anyone call this fiasco getting things organised?

You asked about the likelihood of an announcement today, my advice would be "don't hold your breath"

From the French Leonard Cohen site:
Friends,

Robert m'a gentiment répondu.
--> L'annonce aura lieu lundi prochain !
Annonce de quoi ? Je n'ai pas eu l'autorisation de le dire mais j'ai modifié le 1er post et, aux indices déjà donnés par Jarkko et moi, j'ai rajouté quelque chose....

Mon conseil : ne réservez rien !!! Ni places, ni hôtel, ni train, ni avion, rien de chez rien. Voila, c'était un indice supplémentaire et je pense qu'avec ça, chacun va comprendre ce qui se passera pour les dates prévues en mars.

Le Zénith de Caen a eu peut-être l'info (disons plutôt la disparition de l'info!) ici ou chez Jarkko... Gérard Druot est probablement au courant aussi mais attend l'annonce officielle pour envoyer une mailing list...

Patrice.

Roughly translated:

His first post now says: "Ajout le 05 février 2010 : Aucune date actuellement" and ALL of the March dates have been crossed through. :(

Well this is helpful to know it will be Monday before we hear anything, I feared if I took my eye off the site for a time all would be revealed, rather like this gentleman;

A more accurate translation of that crucial central line would be:

Voila, c'était un indice supplémentaire et je pense qu'avec ça, chacun va comprendre ce qui se passera pour les dates prévues en mars.
There! This is an extra clue, and I think that with that, everyone will understand what is to happen to the dates planned for March.


The crossed-out dates for march on the first page are certainly indicative.

This ambiguity has been agonising

This still begs the question, why haven't ticket sales for these shows been stopped if they are not going to happen? :roll:

Agreed.
